Stick Puppets

This morning I came across THIS fun craft. I wanted to put my new "organization" to the test. *sigh* I worked PERFECTLY!!! I cut out the shapes (because we have a TON to do today) & set them out for the boys. You will need:

3 small circles (for the heads)
3 pieces of hair (any color..we did black)
1 triangle
1 rectangle
1 oval
3 craft sticks

Before we started, we talked about the shapes & the colors that were in front of them.

Take your 3 circles & glue the hair on..we did that first so that it wouldn't end up covering the eyes later. Then set the little ones loose drawing faces on the circles.

Once the faces are finished, have your kiddos decorate the triangle, rectangle, & oval bodies.

Then, put glue on the top 2/3 of your craft stick & have the kiddos put the body on the stick leaving just enough space at the top for the head. Then put the head on the top of the stick. Allow to dry & PLAY!!!

Here are our finished products:



**Our puppets are dry now. The boys are sitting at the end of the couch doing puppet shows over the arm. I love listening to the stories that they come up with!!!
